European regional carrier Flybe is planning to operate a new route between Birmingham and Ireland West Airport Knock on four days a week from October 27th, 2013.
Commenting on the announcement, Head of Public Relations Niall Duffy said, “Flybe is absolutely delighted to launch this new route to Ireland West Airport Knock at the start of the 2013-14 winter season.
“Given that we are already the biggest airline at Birmingham Airport, when we learnt of the opportunity to offer the route it was an obvious and natural extension to our network. We look forward to welcoming thousands of new passengers onto the service.” Duffy added.
This expansion of Flybe services out of the Midlands’ airport reinforces its commitment to the region.
This latest route to Knock increases the airline’s list of 23 destinations available from Birmingham that, with a choice of up to 636 flights a week, includes those to Belfast City, Dusseldorf, the Channel Islands, Paris Charles de Gaulle, regional France, Scotland and popular ski destinations in winter.
